Coastal structures with horizontal overhangs are built due to design constraints, but wave loadings substantially increase under these confined geometries. Vertical structure elements, such as steel gates, are vulnerable to damage caused by impulsive wave impacts, potentially exposing the coastal zone to flooding and erosion. Existing formulas...

Wave impact on vertical structures with overhangs is studied. 3 research questions are addressed: 1. How does the entrapped air change during the process of wave impacts ? 2. How is the wave loading influenced by the presence of horizontal overhang ? 3. How is the wave loading influenced by the presence of air pocket?
